An All Progressives Congress (APC) group, Progressive Consolidation Group (PCG), has thrown its weight behind Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023.
The group led by its coordinator, Alhaji Ahmed Mohammed paid a courtesy visit to the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, at the Government House on Friday.
According to the APC group, they are convinced that Osinbajo is the most qualified for the highest position in the country and believed his presidency will calm nerves, foster unity and stability for the nation.
PCG said: “We started our awareness in the area of good governance in March 2019, with a collective resolve to promote our great party, APC, so as to ensure that our party again produces the next President come 2023.
“Looking at the extant developmental challenges that the Country is contending with, it is only wise for the Party to choose a most qualified and most acceptable candidate to sustain and improve on the positive gains, achievements and legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari
“It is in view of this development that we at the PCG feel convinced that an Osinbajo Presidency come 2023 will bring down tension,
facilitate unity and stability as well as accelerate further progress in all sectors of the economy
“Therefore, we are here before you to seek for your support, wise counsel and advice towards accelerating the possibilities of collective success
“Looking at his experience, capacity, above all, the need for our party, APC and Nigeria to ensure focused continuity in power, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo will make a great leader to fly our party and national flags very high.
“Prof Yemi Osinbajo is very ably qualified to continue the policies and programmes of President Buhari, beyond 2023.
“This is our conviction and we firmly believe that collectively, all parts of the country should join us on this mission of fielding the best among us come 2023 for a greater Nigeria in line with the dreams of our founding fathers and the aspirations of our people.
“We feel it is time to start consulting with major stakeholders in the party in order to get it right in good time, and this is why we choose Katsina as a first point of the state’s visit.
“Another reason is that we want to tap into your wisdom as one of the most senior stakeholder in our party and as former Speaker of House of Representatives and founding member of the APC and most importantly, Katsina State being President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state deserves special recognition in all respects.
“Finally, we wish to state very clearly that we are only exercising our civic responsibility as Nigerians and as APC members, we are not sent by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, neither speaking for him. We only feel that we are obligated as members of the ruling Party to champion a cause we believe is in the best interest of Nigerians,”
